Avocado Protein Breakfast Pita

I’m back! I apologize for being MIA this past month. Planning this Euro-trip has been at the top of my priority list, as I will be taking off in just a few short weeks! Recently, my life has been a whirlwind, from giving my 3-week notice at work, to dealing with my apartment, to starting a new workout regiment (Sean T, you  never fail to impress me), to freaking out about my lack of career options when I return (especially since I anticipate being broke, and my “inner-independent-womanly” self absolutely refuses to ask mommy and daddy for help), and figuring out how to pack my apartment into a few boxes.

Well whenever I am feeling like this, like the life is slowly being sucked out of me…there is one friend that I can always depend on…

Detox Rainbow Chard, Kale and Quinoa Salad

KALE to the rescue! My life would not be the same without this superhero vegetable. I am a big fan of kale recipes, and this one may be the best one I’ve ever come up with. This kale salad is loaded with antioxidants, protein, and fiber, which is why I’ve called it a DETOX salad. It will make you feel fully satisfied without weighing you down, and the nutritional benefits will boost up your energy level.
